giffords giffords, mark kelly, was there. >> the shooter in tucson showed up with two third round magazines, one in his nine mm. he unloaded the contents in 15 seconds, very quickly, happening very fast. the first bullet went into gabby's head, bullet 13 went into a nine-year-old girl named christina taylor green. if he had a ten round magazine, let me back up. when he tried to reload one 33 round magazine with another 33 round magazine he dropped it. and a woman grabbed it. it gave the people around him the time to tackle him. i contend if that same thing happened when he was trying to reload one ten-round magazine with another ten-round magazine, meaning he didn't have access to a high capacity magazine, and the same thing happened, christina taylor green would be alive today. >> the case against banning high-capacity magazines and assault weapons was made anecdotally by witnesses in favor of high-capacity magazi magazines. but all the anecdotes were about people defending themselves using more traditional firearms. >> i would like to begin with the compelling story of sarah mck

that you can be both pro-gun ownership and pro-gun safety reform. specifically, captain mark kelly said our number one priority as a country should be to fix the background check system for buying guns. when people talk about the broken background check system, they're talking about the fact that if you buy a gun at a gun show, or through a private sale, just person to person, you're not required to go through a background check. if you buy from a licensed gun dealer, the law says you do need a background check. but 40% of the guns sold this country aren't sold that way. so our background check system is not really much of a system at all. and don't take it from me. you can take it from the baltimore county chief of police. >> on behalf of my colleagues across the nation, i'm here today to tell you that we are long overdue in strengthening our nation's gun laws. the organizations and the national law enforcement partnership to prevent gun violence urgently call on you to require background checks for all firearms purchased. federal law prohibits dangerous individuals such as convicted f
